Spring Trend: Mint and White


For a day of sightseeing in the spring...

I would love to actually be able to wear this outfit right now but despite the calendar saying April 3rd it’s still below freezing in Ottawa! Instead I shall have to pretend that it’s warm enough to wear cute sandals and go outside in just a blazer. 

Mint and white spring outfit

I love the “city styling” of this outfit and think it would be great to wear when you’re out sightseeing but still want to look polished and fashionable. The mint jeans paired with bright accessories, like a turquoise statement necklace or bright crossbody purse, pop against white neutrals like a great blazer and lace tshirt.  I might sub out the blazer for a cardigan depending on the temperature and whether I wanted to stay on the casual side. A crossbody purse is absolutely necessary if you’re like me and need to have your hands free so you can snap pictures when you're out exploring a new city. And hey guess what – see the cute blue purse on the left? It actually doubles as a camera bag!

Come on spring where are you!!

  1. SUCH cute outfit. I'm basically obsessed with mint skinnies right now (even though I've yet to buy a pair). I'm also looking for new ways to wear my white blazer...so thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Hi Jules, thanks for commenting! I'm in the same boat as you and @Ashley - right now the only mint skinnies I have are these virtual ones :(
